Sean Patrick Gilmartin (born May 8, 1990) is an American professional Florida State University, and was an All-American pitcher for the Florida State Seminoles.

Early years

Gilmartin was born in Moorpark, California and attended Crespi Carmelite High School in Encino, California. After graduating from high school, the San Diego Padres selected Gilmartin in the 31st round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft. Gilmartin opted not to sign with San Diego, instead attending college.[1]

Gilmartin enrolled at Florida State University in 2009, receiving a scholarship to play college baseball for the Florida State Seminoles baseball team. As a junior in 2011, Gilmartin was named an All-American by Baseball America.[2]

Professional career

Gilmartin was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the first round, with the 28th overall selection, of the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft.[3] He signed with the Braves, receiving a $1,134,000 signing bonus.[1]

Prior to the 2012 season, Gilmartin was ranked as the Braves fifth best prospect by Baseball America.[4] In 2013, Gilmartin played for the Gwinnett Braves of the Class AAA International League, though his performance was limited by shoulder injuries. After the 2013 season, the Braves traded Gilmartin to the Minnesota Twins for Ryan Doumit.[5][6]

Scouting report

Gilmartin throws four pitches: a fastball, a curveball, a changeup and an occasional slider only to left handed hitters.[7]
